  1. Made in the crock pot overnight adding cardamom and 1 cup of water cutting the honey down to 1/4 cup and woke early to the wonderful warming aroma of this compote. A nice way to start the day! Skipped the frozen yogurt. Put it in a large glass mug and enjoyed.
  2. This is very good! I set up the crock pot last night...and served it this morning with Gingerbread Pancakes (recipe#138728) Yummy!! Thanks for the great recipe! Next time (and there will be a next time) I'd like to try it with the frozen yogurt!!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
